Thursday, March 2 — Psalm 31:21–24
Ezra 1,2; Acts 27:21–38
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God? Psalm 42:3
Paul wrote: We who have the Spirit as the first of God’s gifts also groan within ourselves as we wait for God to make us his children and set our whole being free. For it was by hope that we were saved. Romans 8:23–24 (GNT)
When darkness overshadows us, we cling to your mercy. When hopelessness pervades, we cling to your promises. We wait for you to come, dear Jesus. We place ourselves in your loving care. Amen.
